Yesod (or Foundation) is built upon the knowledge and skills a leader needs to be effective.
The Minneapolis Jewish Federation, in partnership with the Harry Kay Center for Leadership Excellence, is hosting a fall leadership development program—Yesod—for 20 Jewish professionals in the Twin Cities community, which will be taught by Sally Abrams.
The curriculum, created for the Jewish Federations of North America by Dr. Erica Brown and the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning, is designed to inspire and teach by using case studies, reflective exercises, and Jewish texts.
Adath Jeshurun is fortunate to have eight members of our congregation nominated to take part in this eight session leadership development course. They include:
The first half of the curriculum will focus on personal leadership skills, including in-depth analysis of personal strengths and how to leverage them to be a stronger leader. The second half of the curriculum will focus on organizational leadership.
We hope you'll join us in a hearty Mazel Tov to our talented members serving as professionals in the Jewish community as they embark on this great learning opportunity.
